Our Community Guidelines are created to keep Doodle Kisses a fun, informative, and respectful place where we can all have fun 'talking doodle.' By joining Doodle Kisses, you agree to the following Community Guidelines as terms of membership:
Be Nice. Doodle Kisses is here for connecting doodle owners around a common interest: our doodles! Even though we all love doodles, there will always be differing opinions within large groups. That is okay. Don't let your heated opinion about a topic or idea turn into heat against an individual.
Don't post on the public threads personal differences, arguments, old grudges, hearsay, private messages, etc. Keep personal grudges private. Doodle Kisses is not the place for rehashing old grudges or personal issues with other members. We don't provide judges, lawyers or juries.
Keep it Clean. While this may mean different things to different people, swearing/profanity is not appropriate on Doodle Kisses. Because many of our members have become friends via this community...some off topic discussions will occur and that is totally okay and fun! But as non-doodle topics progress, remember that Doodle Kisses is intended to be a friendly, welcoming community of people who are here to "talk doodle" FIRST. Watch your language and keep things somewhat family friendly.
Please do not use 'Doodle Kisses' as a means to advertise your site/products/services or to solicit customers/members. No spamming, soliciting money, commercial messages, or link farming. Members agree to not use any of the following ways to advertise, promote, or repeatedly link to their website: Status Updates, Comments, Chat, Videos, Photos, Groups, Blogs, or Forum Discussions. As such Profile names may not contain website URL's -- in other words ---"Adina of Adina's Doodle Photos is okay... "Adina (DoodlePhotos.com)" is not. A simple name looks so much nicer and less cluttered than a business name. You may only use your profile page to tell others about your website/product/service. You can also participate in our link exchange to get your site listed on our links page or contact me for other options. So there are legitimate ways to promote your stuff, but please keep ads and promotions out of blogs or forum discussions or anywhere else besides your personal page or pre-approved areas. It's one thing if someone comes to you seeking info about your site/service/product, another if you go around soliciting.
Reviews of individual breeders do NOT belong in the main forum, blogs or groups or any public area of DK. If you want to recommend your breeder, you may do so in our Owner Recommended Breeders group or invite your breeder to post an ad in our puppy sales groups (mentioned below) or make the recommendation privately (on a member's profile page or by private message). If you are seeking information on an individual breeder, please ask for private responses.
Breeders may only advertise dogs or puppies for sale in either the "Labradoodles for Sale" group or the "Goldendoodle for Sale" group -- instructions on ad guidelines are listed in those groups and must be followed. Breeders may also advertise breeder-related matters in the Breedersgroup freely. If you are a breeder, please keep breeding related discussions (finding studs, heat cycles, trouble with dam's pregnancy, trouble finding clients, etc) confined to the Breedersgroup.
Doodle owners seeking a breeding mate for their dog should do so elsewhere. We recommend finding a breeder mentor with which to discuss breeding plans. But such inquiries may not be made on DoodleKisses.com.
Only one member account per individual is permitted on DK. Extra aliases and multiple accounts are not permitted. If you are having trouble with your account, please contact administration at: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you find a member in violation of any of the above guidelines, please contact me. If you look at the very bottom of any page you will see an orange bar and in that you'll see text that reads "Report an Issue" -- click that and fill out the form.
This site is for doodle owners, by doodle owners...while all dog lovers are welcome, we will not tolerate non-doodle owners joining simply to stir up trouble or promote a political agenda.
Listen to, and cooperate with, moderators. Challenging the decisions/actions/inaction of moderator/s in the open forum is not acceptable behavior. Please report problems you encounter by going to the bottom of any page on DK and clicking "Report an Issue."
